"Exchanges and Temporalities in the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Victorianism"
Deadline: December 1, 2013
The Humanities Research Center at Rice University is accepting applications for year long residential fellowships to participate in the 2014-15 Rice Seminar, “Exchanges and Temporalities in the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Victorianism.” We are looking to appoint three external faculty members (any rank) and one postdoctoral fellow. Fellows will participate in the Rice Seminar, a yearlong research seminar designed to study a broad topic from an interdisciplinary perspective. The seminar will be directed by Helena Michie (English) and Alexander Regier (English).
Applications are welcome from scholars, from all ranks and in all disciplines, whose research problematizes the geographical, chronological, and epistemological assumptions that divide the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries into periods or movements, and addresses cultural exchanges between Britain and the rest of the world. Fellows will take part in a yearlong residential research seminar, leading to the publication of an edited collection with a major university press.
All fellows are expected to be resident and full time at Rice for the entire appointment of the 2014-15 academic year. Their primary obligations will involve actively participating in all aspects of the Seminar. The postdoc will be required to teach two courses in the humanities. Participants will also be expected to contribute to the graduate and undergraduate experience of Rice students; the nature of this engagement will be determined in consultation with the applicant.
International scholars are encouraged to apply.
Postdoctoral applicants must have completed PhDs between July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2014.
